Gary Hart Comments on the Sixth Anniversary of 9/11

Gary Hart, Chairman of the Center’s sister organization, Council for a Livable World, wrote a trenchant piece in the Huffington Post yesterday, discussing the status of America six years after 9/11.

Six years ago three thousand Americans lost their lives. They need not have. Their deaths could have been prevented. Their lives could have been saved.

The Bush administration was warned months before 9/11 that terrorists were going to attack America. They did nothing. They have yet to be held accountable for the preventable loss of American lives. Yet the administration blames its critics for not understanding the terrorist threat.

The perpetrator of those American deaths is still at large and the war to eliminate those who harbored him threatens to drag on inconclusively for many years. Instead, administration operatives, with the approval of their masters, find it convenient to use him to create fear, and therefore justify their positions of power.
